Shakers Cigar Bar

A lot has happened to my emotional state over the holidays and I could say its for the better. I kept believing in something that would never have been possible and I ended it. I ended it in a way that made me suffer, but I ended it nonetheless. The entire thing revolved around me caring too much and he made me feel weak and worthless. It was a situation of control and now it’s over.

Shakers Cigar Bar Haunted Safe

And just a few short days after, a friend of mine didn’t want me to be sad any longer. I would never be the girl to let him pick up the pieces, but he was there to let me cry on his shoulder and let me talk his ear off about someone who had hurt me. He told me that I am his best friend and he can’t imagine his life without me. swoon. He took me on our first official date last Saturday.

Shakers Cigar Bar Haunted 3rd Floor

We went to La Casa De Alberto for Mexican food, The Safe House for drinks, and Shakers for drinks and a haunted tour of the building. The building was constructed in 1894 and used as a Speakeasy in the 1920s and also used as a filmset for the movie Dillinger.

The first picture is Zack and I with a safe at Shakers. The safe is haunted as workers have found it moved across the basement and no one has ever been able to unlock it. The second picture is me on the third floor of Shakers. This is the apartment of the A-list prostitute that “disappeared”. 70 years later there was a bag of charred bones that were uncovered from under the floorboards which are presumed to be this girl (according the age of the bones). Creepy!

And for a measly $350 dollars, you and one other person can sleep over in the third floor room! There are no ghosts or spots in my photos 🙁
